Advanced Preparation Program


The Advanced Preparation Program (APP) provides a model of a new approach to student success that builds on existing institutional strengths in collaboration with the College of Arts and Sciences and The Office of Admissions. UMKC admits individuals from urban communities, who possess the academic potential to achieve at UMKC but who could benefit from advanced preparation during their freshman year. Our mission is to provide program participants with trial admission under the College of Arts and Sciences, accompanied by support services that enhance their opportunities to go beyond surviving to thriving.
